I have various targets from steel target makers and so far TA targets are my favorite. Their AR 550 targets can take a lot of abuse and from closer ranges. They always take time to answer questions when you call them too.
2/3 Magnum A-DAP 1/2" AR550
TaTargets are by far the highest quality steel I’ve owned by any company. This particular target is my favorite. It’s a small and demands respect. A lot of the full size silhouette targets are easy to hit, you hear the *DING* and you get that instant gratification of a hit, but that big target allows you to get sloppy... the 2/3rd mini A-DAP demands accuracy if you want to hear that beautiful sound.
I'm lucky enough to have a range on my property and I have at least a dozen steel targets from several companies and they're all great to be honest. But it's easy to see as soon as you open the box the amount of thought and care that went into building these targets. It's extremely well made, robust, attractive and its functional. I love the round base for how easy it is to maneuver to new positions without taking it down and it's ability to hold cardboard silhouettes as well. Also love the hinged design and forward lean of the target plate, ensuring that the splatter goes exactly where it's supposed to. And that sound! The ring was ok when I got it but the more I shoot it, the better it gets. If you're thinking about it, just do it. Especially with the 1/2", this will be a lifetime target for 99% of ppl out there. Also have their falling tree, look for my review there. Thanks you guys and keep up the great work!
THIS IS THE BEST TARGET ON THE MARKET !!!! IN ADDITION, THIS COMPANY HAS THE TOP OF THE LINE CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR ANY QUESTIONS. THIS PARTICULAR TARGET IS THE PERFECT SIZE FOR COMPETITION SHOOTER DUE TO THE SIZE COMPARISON TO THE A ZONE. IT ALSO CHALLENGES ANY SHOOTERS AT ANY DISTANCE.
I recently ordered 2 of these. I was worried at first that I should have gotten the full size target but to my surprise this was plenty big enough. Challenging at farther out but a great medium size at close range (10 yards). Well built, designed well, and fun to shoot. I have a feeling this target will last a lifetime. I am extremely happy I went with this company. Not to mention they are good people and made in america. Now I have to explain to my wife why I am going shooting every other day...
